How do you survive, when the only life you’ve ever known disappears in a single night?
With more friends than she could count and the daughter of two wealthy attorneys, Bailey Dewitt had a life most kids dream about. A cheerleader, the auburn haired beauty lived in a large house, where she could afford to be and do whatever she wanted. Residing in a smaller community outside of Chicago, she attended high school, getting ready for college and the fabulous career that would one day be hers. And in a single night, she lost it all; the night her parents died.
Dragged away from the only home she has ever known and forced into the care of her renegade uncle, Bailey must learn to play by a new set of rules. Faced with tough choices, she soon learns that nothing will ever be the same. When she meets Caleb Cross, she realizes her life in Illinois had been a lie. For the first time in her life, she has the chance to be happy. That is, if she can earn her place among the people in the tiny prepper community of Lawson…

“Take care of my brothers then, ok?”
“What’s that supposed t’ mean?” he cut his glare back over to her.
“It means, if you decide to get rid of me, or send me away, or whatever. I mean, you guys are obviously happy to have them here, the way you all fawn over them. Maybe because you’re short on boys, I don’t know,” she kept her eyes on him, watching for his reaction to her hypothesis.
“I guess you noticed our ratio is a little off,” he chuckled.
“Yes,” she sighed loudly, “I noticed. That’s why I figure you’ll send me away. You don’t really have room for another girl. So when you do, please just take care of them. Ok?”

Liaison Liability, Book 3 of the Fantasies, Inc. Series by Piper Denna @PiperDenna ~ Out Now!!

Liaison Liability
Book 3 of the Fantasies, Inc. Series
Piper Denna


What happens at Fantasy Mountain stays at Fantasy Mountain…except when it doesn’t.
Trusting the “anonymity algorithms” Fantasy Mountain advertises, Emily treats herself to Blind Date weekend at the upscale sex resort. Her kinky side is a bit too risqué for the small community where she owns a business and holds a public office, so she’s taken herself completely out of the dating game. Still, a girl has needs, and the guy she hooks up with her first night there does an incredible job of meeting all those needs. Breaking the resort’s rules, they prolong their scheduled two-hour date and spend the entire weekend together.

As he leaves the resort, Jase realizes why Emily looks so familiar to him. He’s seen her business card—on his desk. Since he’s still recovering from a major emotional slapdown, he isn’t interested in a relationship, but he and Emily are smoking-hot in bed, and he’s not ready to tell her goodbye. A business meeting puts them in the same room, and Jase does everything he can think of to convince Emily they should get into bed again.

Going public with a new boyfriend now would be political suicide, especially since the guy is a client at her business. Still, Emily finds it impossible to resist seeing Jase on the downlow. Each tryst requires more trust, and puts everything she’s worked for at risk. The rush of sneaking around only serves to heighten her pleasure…and her appetite for more. But what will happen when their private play becomes public knowledge?

“Can I interest you in lunch, to celebrate our new business relationship?”
Not a freaking chance in hell. “I’m afraid I’ll have to take a raincheck.” She forced her most professional voice. “I have three other appointments in the area today.”
“I see.” He pulled an engraved pen from its stand on the corner of his desk. “No doubt with other managers you plan to woo.” As he signed the contract, he nearly pressed the ink pen through the paper. And on the second copy, the page actually tore.
Uh. Was he pissed professionally because he wasn’t the only hotel account she intended to sign, or… She fought the urge to fan herself. The idea of Jase being jealous, caveman-y, made her want to climb into his desk chair with him. With effort, she made herself recall that night at the election debate when Ted Kettle brought up her sexcapades with an “employee” in front of all those interested voters. The things she’d done with Jase, and where she’d gone to do them, could never, ever go public.


Fantasy Mountain trailer (PG-13, probably not for viewing at work)


Romance is sexy. And often funny, and sometimes tangled up with suspense. Let’s face it: all sorts of things get mixed up with romance in real life.
Piper Denna’s stories are not cut-and-dried romance. Her characters deal with issues female readers can relate to: independence and trust, empowerment, inhibition, an unfaithful partner, motherhood. Sometimes her characters make mistakes, and often her “bad guys” are not 100% bad. She hopes to take the reader on an emotional journey to a happy ending…with enviable sexual encounters along the way.
When she’s not writing, she edits, raises two teens along with her husband, and collects scrapbooking material.
She enjoys books or movies with a comedic twist and hopefully a love story with lots of tension, too.
Sexiest parts of a man in Piper’s opinion? The hands and eyes. Shoulders are nice too, and of course, great pecs are never amiss…

The Hut - Banner


TITLE – The Hut in the Woods AUTHOR – VLZ GENRE – Mystery/Suspense PUBLICATION DATE – 07/13/15 LENGTH (Pages/# Words) – 10hrs 46min PUBLISHER – vlzbooks

The Hut - Cover 


Carly Ruth Laden moved away from the small town she was born and raised in, and headed for the city of Carmingden. At the tender age of 22 years, Carly met her husband, Dorian Shiffer, a man every woman wanted for their very own. Dorian carried a secret which Carly unearthed and that secret shocked not only Carly, but her family as well. Strange events began to surround the Laden family. Unanswered questions along with the disappearance of Carly Ruth Laden Shiffer set in motion a series of events that would forever haunt the townsfolk of Burl and Helmsdale. Versions of the truth were what gathered together the townspeople of both these small towns. Everyone had their own opinions as to what happened to Carly and her brother, Decker Laden, and to Dorian Shiffer. Carly felt her seemingly perfect marriage was crumbling because her husband was having an affair. When she discovers Dorian was in fact having an affair, the truth of her husband’s apparent change is a shock Carly was not prepared for. Things turned from bad to worse when Carly decides to confront Dorian. Carly disappears. Her parents, Barbara and Drew, and her brother, are left to endure the agonizing and horrifying events about to take place. Events that no one ever thought possible. Carly’s past nightmares come back to haunt her, to take revenge. The Laden family becomes swept inside a tornado of changing degrees, where their lives are turned inside out, and where hope becomes a lost treasure buried somewhere unknown, somewhere deep and dark. No one is aware of the evil lurking in the woods along Laden Lane. Carly informs the sheriff of Burl of a mysterious truck parked just near Laden Lane. No one pays much mind to Carly’s suspicions. Everyone believes Carly has a crazy head. Since childhood, Carly has had an over-active imagination. Carly Ruth Laden Shiffer had become the boy who cried wolf.

Kallypso Masters Boxed Set @kallypsomasters ~ First Time Ever ~ 99c #Sale

First Time Ever: .99 Cent Sale 8/25 - 8/30 


Barnes and Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Google | ARe 

Available together for the first time--with NEW Bonus Material! Enjoy the first three books in the USA Today bestselling series, Rescue Me Saga. This 1300-plus page set is the perfect collection for fans wanting to own the updated versions without losing their originally published covers AND is a bargain for new readers wanting to discover the series and see why Adam, Marc, Damian--with all their perfect imperfections--are loved by so many readers. Each book in this series has sold more than 100,000 paid copies individually since their releases in 2011 and 2012! Grab yours and see what the excitement is all about! 


First, a blast from the past as Ms. Masters shares a few interviews from the blogosphere where she and her characters answered some insightful (sometimes prophetic) questions four years ago when this adventure began. In addition, she has compiled a collection of 13 recipes mentioned in scenes in these books.
This box set includes the previously combined MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL, plus NOBODY’S HERO and NOBODY’S PERFECT—all three with happy endings!

Book 1 (previously combined), MASTERS AT ARMS & NOBODY’S ANGEL:
MASTERS AT ARMS begins the journey of three men, each on a quest for honor, acceptance, and to ease his unspoken pain. Their paths cross at one of the darkest points in their lives. As they try to come to terms with the aftermath—forging an unbreakable bond—will they ever truly become masters of their own fates? Or would fate become master of them?

NOBODY’S ANGEL: Marc d’Alessio might co-own a private kink club with his fellow military veterans, Adam and Damian, but he keeps all women at a distance. When Marc rescues Angelina Giardano from a disastrous first experience at his club, however, an uncharacteristic attraction leaves him torn between his safe, but lonely world, and a possible future with his angel. While trying to protect Angelina from her abusive ex, though, Marc once again finds her at the Masters at Arms Club where she turns his safe, controlled world upside down.

Retired Marine Master Sergeant Adam Montague has battled through four combat zones, but now finds himself retreating from Karla Paxton, who has declared war on his heart. With a significant age difference, he feels he should be her guardian and protector, not her lover. But Karla’s knack for turning up in his bed at inopportune times is killing his resolve to do the right thing. Karla isn’t the young girl he rescued nine years earlier—something his body reminds him of every chance it gets.

USA Today Bestselling Book 3, NOBODY’S PERFECT:
Savannah/Savi escaped eleven years of abuse at the hands of her father and finally made a safe life for herself and her daughter. But when her father once again threatens her peace of mind—and her daughter’s safety—Savi runs to Damian Orlando for protection. Eight years earlier as Savannah (in MASTERS AT ARMS), she shared one perfect day with Damian that changed both their young lives and resulted in a secret she no longer can hide. But being with Damian reawakens repressed memories and feelings she wants to keep buried. After witnessing a scene with Damian on Savi’s first night at his private club, however, she begins to wonder if he could help her regain control of her life and reclaim her sexuality and identity.
Damian, a wounded warrior, has had his own dragons to fight in life, but has never forgotten Savannah. He will lay down his life to protect her and her daughter, but doesn’t believe he can offer more than that. She deserves a whole man, something he can never be after a firefight in Iraq. Damian has turned to SM to regain control of his life and emotions and fulfills the role of Service Top to “bottoms” at the club. However, he could never deliver those services to Savi, who needs someone gentle and loving, not the man he has become.
Will two wounded survivors find love and healing in each other’s arms?

Facebook Party: 7-11 p.m. EDT Aug. 27
Join Kally and friends--Ruth Cardello, Eliza Gayle, Rachel Lee, Donna McDonald, and Eliza Gayle--for a FaceBook party celebrating my 4 Years of Eyes on Me (and my Masters) at Kally will be giving away four $50 Gift Cards and her friends will have giveaways, too! Lots of fun interacting with each other and sharing stories with readers. 

Excerpt of the Recipe BONUS Section in the box set (one of the 13 recipes shared):
Cassie’s Peruvian Pork Loin 
with Spicy Rice (Peruvian Tacu Tacu)
Nobody’s Hero
Pork Loin:
Dry rub (Cassie uses a rub with powdered aji panca, salt, and brown sugar)
2 lb. pork tenderloin (two loins)
1/2 cup beef broth
1/4 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup port wine
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Pat the meat dry and coat with the dry rub, then put into an uncovered glass oven-proof baking dish. (If you line it with foil ahead of time, it makes it easier to clean later and you can use the foil to wrap the meat after roasting.) Place dish of uncovered meat in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours or even overnight. 
In medium bowl, combine broth, marmalade, orange juice, and port wine together; pour over pork and return to refrigerator for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Turn pork occasionally so all sides are coated by the sauce. Remove from fridge about 30 minutes before cooking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
Place dish on center rack and bake pork with sauce until thoroughly cooked, about 25-45 minutes until the internal temperature reaches at least 150 degrees F. (Kally always errs on the side of caution when working with pork! Use a meat thermometer. Temperature should rise as much as 10 degrees after being removed from oven and 160 degrees after a few minutes resting is ideal.) Remove from oven.
Cover meat to keep warm. 
Pour juices/drippings into a small saucepan. Add cornstarch. Bring to a slow simmer, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened.
Uncover and slice meat to desired thickness.
Serve with sauce poured over meat or on the side. See Spicy Rice recipe below to accompany.

Cassie’s Spicy Rice (Peruvian Tacu Tacu)
1 cup dried brown lentils (7-8 ounces)
7-1/4 cups water, divided
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic, divided
6 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
1 cup long-grain mix of white and wild rice
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon bottled ají amarillo or ají mirasol chile paste

In a heavy, medium saucepan, bring lentils, 5 cups water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil; simmer, uncovered, until lentils are just tender (about 12-25 minutes). Drain and transfer to a large bowl. 
In another heavy, 2-quart saucepan, cook 1 teaspoon garlic over medium heat while stirring for about one minute.
Add rice to garlic pan and cook, continuing to stir for about a minute. 
Add remaining water (2-1/4 cups) and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook over low heat for another 20 minutes. 
Remove from heat. Let covered pan stand for about 10 minutes, then using a rubber spatula, stir rice from top to bottom before adding to lentils mixture. 
In a heavy, 12-inch, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion and remaining teaspoon minced garlic in 1 tablespoon oil until onion turns a golden color (approximately 3-5 minutes). Add chile paste and continue to stir 1 minute. Stir onion mixture into rice-lentil bowl.
In same skillet, heat oil over medium temperature until hot. Add rice-lentils mixture and fry. Use spatula to gently flatten until golden-brown crust forms on bottom (about 3 minutes), then stir rice-lentils and fry, flatten it again, until once again a golden-brown crust forms (another 3 minutes). Repeat frying and flattening until the crusty bits are dispersed throughout the dish (perhaps three more turns, or 9 minutes, for a total frying time of 15 minutes). 
Serve hot with Peruvian pork loin recipe, above.

Hi! I’m Kallypso Masters and I write deeply emotional, realistic stories of love, healing, and redemption. Each novel ends happily—because there’s enough uncertainty in life that I don’t want to leave you hanging. But the Rescue Me Saga is about people who have formed a family of choice, so they will recur in (read: butt into) each other books (and even spin-off series books) as they continue to work on issues of life, healing, and love.
There always seems to be a level of kink/BDSM in my books. Not necessarily characters who live and breathe the club scene several times a week, but more those who live the lifestyle on a day-to-day basis from one end of the spectrum to another. Even those who don’t enjoy reading kinky books have found these to be enjoyable, compelling page-turners, I think because the kink is not the main focus of the stories. I dig deeper into these people’s lives and emotional issues. I also use kink and any other methods available to help characters heal from the hurts of the world.

My books don’t have predictable, cookie-cutter plots. Even though a book is in the same series, you can expect different heat levels and story/plot/character lines that fit each couple perfectly. Just like in your own family, these people aren’t after the same thing in the same way and each has a personality of his/her own.
I’ve been writing full-time since May 2011, having quit my “day job” the month before with no new job in sight. Luckily, readers latched onto these characters and continue to think about them long after a book is published, so you won’t see this series come to an end. (And I do not believe in killing off main characters, so Adam may someday be about 90 but he’ll still be alive and ticking.) With more than a million copies of my books on e-readers around the world and two have hit the USA Today Bestseller list (NOBODY’S PERFECT and NOBODY’S DREAM, the last release), so readers are still wanting more.

I live in rural Kentucky with my hubby of 32 years. Mr. Ray (as he became known by fans at KallypsoCon 2014) provided me with my own Happily Ever After despite having sworn off marriage and men at the age of 23 after a childhood of abuse. Funny what love can do to us to change our perspective, isn’t it? That theme comes up in my books time and time again.

We have two adult children, one adorable grandson (Master Erik, who makes frequent appearances on my Facebook timeline), and a rescued dog. (Our daughter moved home while finishing training for a new career and brought her rescued cat back with her, too!)

Bittersweet by Jennifer Labelle @1JenniferLabelle ~ Bittersweet Blog Book Blitz



Bitter Sweet by Author Jennifer Labelle is available on Amazon!

Well, Today I’m delighted to introduce you to Jenna Baker and Brady Connolly from Bittersweet.
Jennifer: Good morning to you both, it’s nice to see you visiting us again.
Brady: Mornin’
Jenna: Good morning, Jennifer. It’s great to be back. We’re back in Canada to help my parents finalize everything before the move. Their moving to Dublin to be closer to us, and we couldn’t be happier, especially Jayden. We missed them.

Jennifer: I bet, that’s wonderful news. Speaking of Jayden, how is he coping with all of the changes? He must miss his father.
Jenna: He does, *fans face* it’s just too bad Tyler won’t come around.
Brady: T’is his loss, love. I’d luv te clatter im in the jaw fer hurtin’ the two o’ye.
Jenna: Can you see why I love this man so much? That’s part of the reason we’re here as well. I was hoping to see Tyler before we head back to gain some closure. *Jenna looks at Brady lovingly and caresses the side of his face* just me and Jayden for now to give him one more shot to make amends. I owe Jayden at least that much I think. Tyler is his father after all. Jayden loves Ireland though. In fact, he already has Brady’s parents wrapped around his little finger. Although, Shelby certainly gives him some competition in that department, she’s only a few months old and she already knows how to charm people.
Brady: O’ course. She’s just like her ol’ man. As fer Tyler, I can give ye space te do tha’ if ye need it but, swear to Christ Jenna the gobshite better give ye fair play.

Jennifer: Yes well… *clears throat and opts for a subject change*
Your daughter is definitely a chip off the old block. I never got to properly congratulate the two of you. Shelby is so precious.
Jenna: Thank you, she is isn’t she.
Brady: A beauty like ‘er Ma.

Jennifer: Definitely, so tell me, Jenna, how does it feel to have your story finally told? Yours is a unique one.
Jenna: That it is. I think you did a great job with it, and Brady was the best part. Although, I blush every time I get to the intimate parts. Sam gets a kick out of it, and makes sure to tease me. God love her.
Brady: *Leans down to capture a kiss from Jenna.* We’ve got a lot te thank her for. If it wasn’t fer Sam’s meddilin’ ways we might’ve never met.

Jennifer: How are Sam and Caleb?
Jenna: They’re doing great. They’re expecting their first child this spring. A little girl so Shelby will soon have a playmate to enjoy. Hopefully they’ll be the best of friends like Sam and I are, and Brady and Caleb.

Jennifer: I’ll have to congratulate her the next time I see her then. Poor Jayden’s going to be outnumbered. Have you both thought about having any more children in the future to try for another boy?
Brady: Oh yeah.
Jenna: Maybe one day, but I just had Shelby and having another one isn’t on my list of priorities at the moment. *chuckles* I want to enjoy Brady, Jayden, our daughter a little while more first, and maybe when my mind forgets how painful childbirth was, then maybe we can talk. Oh lord…

Jennifer: Uh oh, here why don’t you take a little tissue. *Hands Jenna the Kleenex box.*
Jenna: I’m afraid I’m going to have cut this short and go change. I’m so embarrassed. My breasts usually don’t leak unless Shelby gets fussy. 
Brady: *Chuckles* well, love, I think I hear her now.
*Baby cries in the background, there’s a knock at the door.* Jenna’s mother, Delilah, enters: Sorry Jenna but this little girl is hungry. *Shelby wails as Jenna reaches for her.*

Jennifer: I understand. I’d like to thank you both for joining me today. It was a pleasure to write the book and I loved catching up. Take care of yourselves and if I’m ever vacationing in Dublin I’ll be sure to stop in to say hi.
Jenna: Oh please do.
Brady: *extends his hand to shake* Thank ye.

If you all liked this interview, and would like a one of a kind erotic contemporary romance to keep you company then may I suggest checking out, Bittersweet. I’d like to thank Jenna and Brady for their time, and for sharing their experience with all of us.
Please enjoy the blurb below, an excerpt, and a review snippet.

An accident on a rain-slicked highway leaves Jenna Baker alone…

Jenna is scarred, confused and vulnerable after surviving an accident that took her husband’s life. After a year of mourning Tyler and struggling to raise their son on her own, Jenna’s best friend whisks her off to fulfill her lifelong dream of visiting Ireland. She never dreamed her trip would include a self-appointed tour guide in the form of a sexy Irishman with piercing blue eyes and a smile that promises to fill her empty heart.

Brady Connelly is irresistibly drawn to the lovely, broken Yank…

As the weeks pass, Brady comforts and supports Jenna, convincing her to live and chase her dreams. His attraction to her grows and their chemistry ignites, but Jenna isn’t sure she’s truly ready to move on. How can he convince her to release the past and take a leap of faith…with him?

The impossible happens, and Jenna’s world is thrown into chaos…

Tyler is alive and re-enters Jenna’s life, burdened with guilty secrets. Jenna knows she has to try to make things work between them, if only for their son’s sake, but she’s blessed—or cursed—with vivid visions of Brady. The visions begin to consume her and leave her questioning her sanity and the bittersweet nature of her marriage.

Jenna’s dreams of Brady become her lifeline as she questions the boundaries of fantasy and reality.

Is her one hope for happiness waiting for her somewhere across the sea?

Reviews:  “First, let me say that when I read the blurb of this novel the first thing I thought was that this could either be really great or really depressing.  It was definitely GREAT!!  The main and supporting characters were solid, and you will either love them or hate them (okay, loathe is probably the better word there).  The ending was satisfying and worth the emotional ride that this novel brings us through.
 I give this novel 5 stars for it’s ambitious and successful telling of this woman’s life-altering trials and happily ever after!” ~The TBR Pile -


After mingling a little, the partygoers drifted outside to the yard, and Jenna leaned against one of the large French doors connected to the house while Sam went to fill her plate with goodies. She took a sip of wine and smiled when their host seated the
guest of honor in the middle of the crowd and tapped his glass to gather everyone’s attention.

“We’re here to celebrate the love of me life. Sarah blessed this ol’ heart years ago, and I thank God for her every day. May we drink to celebrate, get drunk to fall asleep, because when we fall we commit no sin, an’ when we commit no sin, we go to heaven. But, before we continue on I’ve got a li’l somethin’…” Cian reached inside his pocket and withdrew the small box with Sarah’s gift. She gasped the moment she laid eyes on the delicate pair of earrings and laughed and cried joyously when he put them on her.

Jenna smiled wide and wiped a tear of her own when Cian began his speech again. “May God grant us both many years to go on, for sure he must be knowin’ the earth has angels all too few. Slainte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mna go deo. An’ for those who don’t know what I be sayin’…” He held his drink high. “Health to the men, and may the women live forever! I love ye.”

Cheers and whistles erupted, and that might have been why she hadn’t seen him approach until the last second. “The ol’ man sure has a way with words.”

“I think it’s beautiful.” Jenna smiled and turned to face the good-looking stranger. “If only we were all that lucky.” She tipped her drink toward the kissing older couple and then took a sip while she watched him from above the rim. Whoever he was,
he was tall, slender, and very pleasing to the eye with his short, tousled dirty-blonde hair and sparkling green eyes. She instantly liked him.

“Aye, if only,” he agreed. “The name’s Callum, and ’tis always a pleasure to meet such a lovely bird.”

“Oh you definitely have to be related to our hosts. I’ve never met a bunch of men with such flirtatious charm. Or maybe it’s just the Irish in general.” She giggled, “Whatever it is, it’s quite refreshing.”

“Oh, well I’m glad ye think so.” He winked.
